, just back from israel last night. dennis, first of all, the ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general now is planning, be according to the u.n., to meet with netanyahu in israel after meets in cairo with president morsi and abbas in the west bank. up until this point the u.n. has not been a player here. what is your understanding of the terms of engagement in the efforts to reach a cease-fire? >> well, i think what you -- the report you heard are probably pretty close to accurate, that the fact is from the israeli standpoint, they don't want an outcome that produces a cease-fire and two weeks from now this starts all over again. when they mobilize this many troops, it's not so easy to keep them mobilized for a long period of time. the notion that somehow this is just penn state fu-- posturing their part. hamas wants to be in a position where the passages get open and palestinians are free to travel and so fort. that has an egyptian dimension. the egyptians even under the new egypt than government, have not created a free trade area, a free area for movement and so forth. egypt has a inter

'll have a live report. move over george clooney the on yan's kim junge un the sexiest man alive and beijing doesn't get the joke. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no joke today on capitol hill. ambassador susan rice's attempt to clear the air with republicans over benghazi did not work as the white house had hoped. senators mccain, ayotte and graham say they have more questions than they had before rice's comments about benghazi. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get it. >> if you don't know what happened just say you don't know what happened. people can push you to give explanations and you can say i don't want to give bad information. >> that's troubling to me as well, why she wouldn't have asked, i'm the person that doesn't know anything about this, i'm going on every single show. >> joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor managing editor of post politics.com and our own nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. well, this was pretty tense. chris, first to you. you've s

want secretary of state nomination to go to susan rice, our u.n. ambassador. >> right. you know, kudos to my colleag colleagues. in some ways this doesn't change from a political perspective that john kerry -- may to the be long for the senate. whether it's state or defense, you know, if he does leave, sitting presidents don't love picking sitting senators of their party, simply because it sort of creates problems for them down ballot. this could actually create a problem. scott brown, now the defeated republican senator from massachusetts, lost to elizabeth warren convincingly a week ago today, would be a formidable candidate in a mid 2013 special election. democrats do have sort of a little bit of a cushion. they won seats last tuesday, they have a little senate cushion but i can tell you there's probably some grimaces about the idea if john kerry doesn't get state he'll get defense within senate democratic circles. >> a democratic governor who could appoint himself. >> right. >> or figure out some other way, could run for that office himself and run against scott brown and he would

to back off in terms of opposing a u.n. declaration of palestinian statehood. giving abu maysan some legitimacy and supporting his leadership is critical. >> this is scheduled for the general assembly for november 29th. he lost in the security council which would have been statehood supposedly. now it is a symbolic gesture in the general assembly. hillary clinton said today in ramallah to abu massen, also known as mahmoud abbas, by his proper name, said do not pursue this. this will only create problems for you in congress. you will lose money, you will lose legitimacy, not gain legitimacy. why do you think that's an important step? >> that one vote will hurt but it can be compensated for elsewhere. the point is this man and movement that he heads and this government that he heads in the west bank, is struggling for legitimacy. what hamas has done is become the center of attention and the driving force in -- on the palestinian street -- >> hasn't the train left the station for abbas and fayyad and the others in that wing of the palestinians. >> i was going to say the second step. the

as part of her position in the u.n. and, in fact, reviewed the briefings that contained the references to al qaeda that individuals with ties to al qaeda were involved. and then yet, went on the sunday show and left a very different impression. let's not forget that on those sunday shows on "meet the press" as well as "face the nation" she also made the statement that al qaeda was decimated. and so it left a misleading impression to the american people. i was also troubled that they knew by the 21st the acting director of the cia said that the information about the reaction to the video and the protest was wrong and that no one corrected it, including ambassador rice, even though she had left that impression on every single network, op every sunday show. that left me very concerned about that as well. >> did she say to you that she had reviewed intelligence specifically about benghazi, that had the additional information? she couldn't say so publicly. had she reviewed that intelligence? did she affirm that to you or are you assuming that she had? >> she did review it. >> so, in other w

convening this week. thanks very much. what is the significance of what happened at the u.n.? a step forward, a step back or status quo? >> i guess a step sideways, out of the normal channel for resolving the conflict peacefully, that is through negotiati negotiations, sideways to the united nations. it doesn't move the palestinians forward. it's a significant but symbolic act. and if it produces a kind of punitive, vicious circle in which the israelis now announce more settlement activity, the particularly strategic activity it seems to be, and then the palestinians decide to go to the international criminal court who would charge israel with some crimes and then we'll get into a downward spiral, the congress cuts the funds to the palestinian authority, we could be in very negative territory quite quickly and bear in mind that there's an election coming up in israel in which an outbidding process is likely to occur. already you have lieberman calling for the toppling of abu mazen and unfortunately there isn't an actual negotiating process happening at the moment. there hasn't been for two y

. on april the 10th, four days later, explosives hit convoy of head of u.n. mission in benghazi. may 22nd, an rpg attack on the international red cross building in benghazi. on june 6th, an ied attack on our own consulate, this consulate, in benghazi. on june 11th, an rpg attack on the british ambassador's convoy in benghazi. now, how dispositive is that as to whether terrorists are active in the area? i would say, with certainty, it is dispositive. and therefore, the way i see it, this was clearly a terrorist attack, the minute you knew they had rpgs and mortars. and i think john mccain said that very early on. and he was dead-on. it's just a fact. so, i mean, who else is doing this kind of thing with mortars and rpgs? >> some of your senate colleagues are suggesting a joint house senate committee like the iran contra committee, like the 9/11 commission. can this be handled by the senate intelligence committee and the house intelligence committee? >> oh, it certainly could be. we work very well together. the four corners meet, we discuss. i've had no proposal to that. i'd certainly be op

extent he comes to the defense of susan rice who is one of the kind of targets in this. our u.n. ambassador who widely mentioned to somebody who's a possible secretary of state, going to be very hard for her to aspire to that. while there's a cloud over her based on statements she made about the benghazi affair that turned out knob to the true. i think he's going to be internal politics and external politics when this comes up. >> michael beschloss, as we await the president, those cabinet decisions are also in play. we see the president coming into the room. so let's go to the podium. >> good afternoon, everybody. please have a seat. i hear you have some questions for me. but let me just make a few remarks at the top and then i'll open it up. first of all i want to reiterate what i said on friday. right now, our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis, so our top priority has to be jobs and growth. we've got to build on the progress that we've made because this nation succeeds when we've got a growing thriving middle class. and that's the idea at the co

, there is no blockade as it were, but the u.n. workers have left, the relief workers have left. what is the situation in terms of just daily life now in gaza? >> well, there are definitely shortages on a few fronts. one the fuel shortage. the fuel shortage has been predominantly supplied by israel. we understand there is a shortage of that in this territory, particularly in the northern part. that affects the electricity supply as well. and it also affects people's ability to cook gas and such. there are shortages of food because the farmers are unable to access their land. we spent the part today in a business busy market asking venders what they noticed. prices have gone up through the roof because it's more expensive and difficult. hospitals here are strained but they say right now are fine in terms of the medical supplies. of course if there is a ground invasion and a spike in civilian casualties they will be very much under strain as we've seen in the past. andrea? >> our team there, martin fletcher and amman mohyeldin, thank you so much. joining me for our daily fix, "washington post" columnist
